We Have Convicted White Supremacist Dylann Roof But America is Still Guilty

In Charleston, South Carolina, a jury has found Dylann Roof guilty on 33 counts of federal hate crimes for murdering nine black worshipers, including Pastor Clementa Pinckney, at the historic Emanuel AME Church in June 2015. The verdict, reached after the jury deliberated for less than two hours, came after 30 witnesses testified over six days. Roof embraced white supremacist views and was shown in photographs posing with the Confederate flag and a pistol. We speak to the late Reverend Pinckney’s friend, Reverend William Barber, head of the North Carolina NAACP.
